We were picked up at the airport for transfer to the Mystique Hotel (transfer is included in room price) The hotel is on the side of a hill with about 20 steps down. The two bellmen carried all of our bags to our room on their backs and with a smile on their faces! We were impressed!
Our room and every room for that matter has a spectacular view of the sea!
The staff was delightful...they definitely spoiled us through our 3 night stay. We enjoyed the restaurant for two wonderful dinners and a hearty breakfast every morning. Our complements to the chef and restaurant staff...also the bartender makes a great Bloody Mary!
They have a lovely spa, where we had a massage and my thanks to Balu for a relaxing time!
We would recommend this hotel to our family and friends!
Thank you again for a exceptional experience!

Room Tip: Fabulous views from every room...all the suites are different and we loved our room!

Mystique has very unique location on the island. Walking distant to the market and close to the feature churches. Every room has an unlimited view from its windows. Cave suites are great and specially designed with tastes. It is exactly as clean and new as what you see from their website!

We had our private wedding ceremony at the hotel. From reservation to making arranging for the cake and photographer, the reception staff are very helpful and provided everything we asked for in a professional manner!

For dinning venue, we first planned to try something in the local neighborhood but then found that it's really not our tastes...so we tried their Charisma restaurant and is quite good and you can enjoy wine tasting in their wine cave or you can enjoy candle light dinner there. I would say it's value for the price, especially to a Luxury Collection hotel.

We loved staying at the Mystique. We were on the final stop of our honeymoon and the staff definitely spoiled us. Anything we asked for they provided us. The two women that worked in the separate office were amazing (I can't remember their names now). The hotel is in walking distance of a great market area and sunset viewing spot. We highly recommend renting some form of transportation (we rented a quad) and seeing the whole island. There are so many beautiful spots on the island. My only disappointment in the hotel was the quality of food in the restaurant for the price. We walked down to the market place after our first meal at the hotel. If you like blander food then you would love the restaurant food, but we liked the much more flavorful food down the street. We love the outdoor hot tubs, but wished we were able to control the temperature of the water, it got a little too cool at night and too warm during the day. Other than those few minor things we loved the hotel!

I spent 3 nights with Mystique as a part of my island hoping experience. First of all, the price tag per night was outrages, i paid around $1300 USD and was little disappointed when i first walked into my room. A hot tub that didn't even worked and lack of 5 stars amenities. Not to mention, the pool was around 20 feet long and 4 feet high, i'm better off soaking in my own hot tub which didn't even work. Besides that, exclusive property, friendly staff, prime location and walking out of your cave into the view every morning is worth dying for. There are other hotels in oia with the same view with a cheaper ticket price, do some research before booking would be wise if you are looking to save a buck or two.

You can often say more with less, so I'll keep this brief. Suffice to say that staying at Mystique is what heaven must be like! The management have achieved that ever elusive desire of travellers; top service, top food, top accommodations and the views (words can't describe them). Without doubt one of the greatest hotels I've ever stayed in.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from an extremely relaxing week at Mystique. The hotel is well appointed and manages to balance modern fixtures and fittings with the traditional look of the surrounding houses. We stayed in an Allure Suite (an upgrade from the one we booked) and were very pleased of the upgrade as the room wasn’t huge. Having said that it was very comfortable and with views to die for. All the staff were very friendly and in fact were probably the thing that made the holiday as relaxing as it was due to nothing being too much trouble. The location is very good for exploring the gorgeous town of Oia which has some excellent restaurants and bars to enjoy the sunset at. As I see some people have already mentioned, the steps are pretty steep, but there are people to carry your bags so it’s no real difficulty. Overall we had a fantastic time and should be return to Santorini, I have no doubt we will stay at Mystique again.

Yes, the pool is too small, there are a lot of steps to climb, and the prices may appear to be steep, but we loved this place. It is in a magical setting on a clifftop just outside the centre of Oia. The rooms spill down the side of the cliff and are in a traditional Santorini style. Each room has its own entrance from the many paths which criss cross the site. Ours was full of light but I think some rooms may have smaller windows; each room is quite individual. The design and decor are superb - very understated and restful and because it is set down from the road (which runs along the cliff top) there is no sound of traffic - and nothing to disturb the astonishing view of the towering canyon like cliffs of the caldera and, of course, the blue sea and blue sky. At night, it is equally beautful particularly in moonlight.
What makes this hotel even more special are the staff - the hotel owners should be careful lest the staff are snapped up by some big city hotel - the staff here are one in a million, charming, always friendly and incredibly helpful. Although there are only a small number of rooms, there is a very high ratio of staff to guests and the level of service is superb. Having stayed in the hotel for 5 nights, I can understand why it is not just the view which justifies the steep price but also the level of service and comfort. For that reason, notwithstanding the steep price per night, I think the hotel does offer value for money.
I note that some reviewers have suggested a lack of privacy on the terraces outside each room. Our room - called an Allure suite - (and I think most rooms have this feature) had its own terrace which was private in that it had its own gate from the path (the terrace was large enough for two sunbeds and a small table and chairs) but the terrace could be seen by staff and other guests passing by on the path. The topography is such that this is inevitable and it did not bother us.
We did not eat at the hotel except at breakfast (which is cooked to order and was very good except for the bread selection which is surprsingly poor ) but it was very relaxing to return for a drink before bedtime (the bar is tiny but the service here is top class).
We did not hire a car (which would have been a cheaper option) but took taxis to Perivolos beach where the hotel has some very comfortable beds on the beach and where there is a full cafe/bar service at the touch of a button. This beach is about 25 minutes distance from the hotel but we thought it was worth going that distance for the services available at Perivolos and because this beach offers very easy and safe bathing and generally a cooling beeze (it can get quite hot in Oia during the day).
As for the steps.......... well, it is difficult to see Oia without navigating a lot of steps and the worst steps are actually outside the hotel property(on the path down from the road) which are, by times, both very deep and yet of quite different depths, and very unevenly spread out. So, care is required - but then similar care is required in much of Oia (at least on the caldera side) and I think, ultimately steps are the price you have to pay for a good view of the caldera.
We left this hotel with regret and are keen to return, if we can, next year.
